Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

All of us have our burdens to bear and we show others how we find strength.
Foreboding days
the tunnel looms close.
My body, like fragile glass,
I could step too close.

Why does it pull me,
a bewitching force?
I envision this broken angel
Wings frail, fallen off course.

Pain filled days I cling to life,
a slender thread at times.
Like a helpless kitten,
a prayer heard is my lifeline.

The blind lady selling apples,
joy filled face touched by grace.
How can one frown
gazing on a love filled face?

Children's laughter rings
the pond gleams in sunshine's glow.
Cherubs pour their liquid balm,
a never ending flow.

I return to my sanctuary,
the tunnel now shines.
I hold God's hand of strength,
claim pain's power as mine.
